Values calculated in this paper are denoted by "Present." Experimental values [21] are denoted by "Experiment," and numerically calculated data from three-dimensional hydroelasticity theory [22] are denoted by "Fu et al.
The partly immersed state of the circular cylinder at T = 0.775 is shown in Figures 6(b)-6(d) and 7(b)-7(d); a noteworthy feature is the negative pressure that appears at the dry part of the cylinder, which is related to hydroelasticity and needs further research.
An expert in theoretical and numerical marine hydrodynamics, he applies his knowledge to solving problems related to nonlinear shallow-water waves, ship resistance, wave loads on offshore structures and pipelines, hydroelasticity of large floating structures, and oil spills.
